Make An Online Pilgrimage

Sacred Destinations. Nearly every culture in human history has sought to encounter and honor the divine, the mysterious, the supernatural or the extraordinary in some way. This most often occurs at sacred sites - special places where the physical world seems to meet the spiritual world. From ancient wonders, to Greek temples, to Biblical sites, and everything in between, the website has a vast collection of photo galleries and maps. The website's founder also maintains a travel blog and posts recent pictures on Flickr.

Note (in case anyone sees anything that seems familiar): A picture and a page from the Sacred Destinations site have been included as reference points in two previous Metafilter posts [here and here] but the site itself and the travel blog have never been featured.

I would have to say this is a fairly cool site. Not much to comment on but well worth looking around.

This will be fun to get lost in!

Thanks for the link amyms. I recently enjoyed this article on the revival of sacred territories in eastern Tibet: The Korlam and the Long March: Notes on the Transformation of Tibetan Ritual Territory in Southern Amdo in the Context of Chinese Developments.
